Stories

Maddy - Brain Cancer

Maddy - Brain Cancer

Two years ago, as she was walking into yoga class, Maddy momentarily found herself unable to speak. At first, she thought it was due to anxiety about school, but when it kept happening, and the right side of her body periodically started going numb, she sought out a doctor. She was eventually diagnosed with astrocytoma.

Harvey - Lymphoma

Harvey - Lymphoma

About two weeks before Harvey turned 73, he discovered a lump over his left collarbone. “It just showed up when I looked in the mirror,” he says. He went to get it checked out by his doctor, and the diagnosis was non-Hodgkin lymphoma. However, “I am grateful that my medical concerns have opened doors to create further relationships, both with other patients and the incredible staff. I felt very emotional the last days of proton therapy. I felt like I was leaving behind family."

Matthew - Childhood Cancer

Matthew - Childhood Cancer

When Matthew walked in the door of the Proton Therapy Center three months after he finished treatment, the welcome from staff was overwhelming. Months earlier, the eight-year-old had been diagnosed with craniopharyngioma — a rare type of noncancerous brain tumor that usually develops near the pituitary gland and optic nerves.

Dan - Prostate Cancer

Dan - Prostate Cancer

Dan is an accomplished baseball player and an avid Mariners and Diamondbacks fan. At age 70, he’s still playing baseball in a league — the Puget Sound Senior Baseball League. In fact, this past fall, they placed second in the 70+ division, and third in the 65+ division at the national tournament in Florida, where more than 300 teams participated. Dan is glad he was able to go, because he’d almost canceled the trip due to his prostate cancer diagnosis.

Reggie - Prostate Cancer

Reggie - Prostate Cancer

Reggie enjoys staying active, and to maintain his health, he regularly visits his primary care physician for annual checkups. When he started experiencing urination issues in 2019, his provider prescribed medication and ordered a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test to determine if the problem might be more serious. At first, his PSA levels were slightly high but not too concerning. But in the following months, another test revealed that Reggie’s PSA levels were climbing. His provider recommended that Reggie get a biopsy, which determined that he had prostate cancer.
